VIP Lane® Design Quality Closure Software to be Shown at DATE 2009MONTPELLIER, France -- April 16, 2009
--Satin IP Technologies, the company that delivers design quality closure with fast return on investment, has been working with the Quality of Electronic and Software Intellectual Property (QIP) Metric standard working group of the IEEE Design Automation Standards Committee (DASC) since the emerging standard was donated to the IEEE by VSIA. The QIP Metric standard allows companies to evaluate intellectual property (IP) from internal groups or third parties for use in integrated circuits.
At DATE 2009, Satin IP will be the first company to demonstrate how current QIP metrics are being used for accurate and on-the-fly design quality monitoring. Satin IP will demonstrate how the metrics are imported into VIP Lane®, the company’s design quality closure software; how they are automated for self-assessment; and how they can be exported in different forms. Working within customers' design flows, VIP Lane® turns customers' design practices for IP blocks or SoCs into a robust set of quality criteria and automates the implementation and documentation of design quality metrics at no extra cost in engineering time or resources.
“There can be a significant amount of time lost when a design team uses an IP that was developed in one flow and integrated using another if quality standards are not addressed up front,” said Kathy Werner, IP Strategy and Business Manager, Freescale Semiconductor, and chair of the IEEE QIP Metric standard working group. “The IEEE QIP working group has given the QIP metric standard a second life, and we are happy to see that Satin IP’s achievement with VIP Lane is in line with our objectives for the standards.”
“Very significant effort from various organizations since 2003 has resulted in more than 800 quality checks and metrics for exchangeable IP cores. By turning the QIP initial form into configurable dashboards, automated to a large extent, we are proud to enable the QIP metric standards to be widely deployed throughout the IP and SoC design community,” said Michel Tabusse, CEO of Satin IP Technologies.
VIP Lane will be demonstrated in Booth #C-4 at DATE 2009 in Nice, France, from April 21st to 23rd, 2009.About the IEEE Standards Association
The IEEE Standards Association, a globally recognized standards-setting body, develops consensus standards through an open process that brings diverse parts of industry together. These standards set specifications and procedures based on current scientific and technological consensus.
